WHO IS HARRY KELLERMAN casts Hoffman as a mixture of Bob Dylan and Paul Simon sartorially the former, the latter in terms of commercial success, indulging in serious self-loathing, occasionally performing songs by Shel Silverstein who, around the same time, wrote A Boy Named Sue, which became a hit for Johnny Cash.

He spends his days with various women flying his plane, and. Who is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me pant, pant, the new Dustin Hoffman film, uses suicide more or less in that way, and that's what bothers me about it. Hoffman plays a spectacularly successful songwriter along the millionaire lines of Burt Bacharach or Rod McKuen who is filled with paranoia and self-doubt and an overwhelming sense of the meaningless of his life. Movies walk a very narrow tightrope between fantasy and reality Dustin Hoffman can convince us he's Benjamin the graduate, or a 121-year-old survivor of Custer's last stand. But can he convincingly play a disenchanted superstar . See, it took me three weeks to get this audition and I bought a new dress and I worked on my song and I had my hair done and now I cant just leave right away I cant just leave right away. I will just have to hang around here for a while, see Thank you, but I cant move anyway my hand is stuck. It happens all the time, I get stuck onto things. Chairs, coffee cups, doorknobs, people. Ill be alright soon. Just dont shake hands with me or anything. You have kind eyes. Its funny to see your face after all that darkness. Those questions are answered by the movie's end. Conventional movie watchers who like action or intense drama will hate this. Who IS. is for fans of black humor, in movies like Harold & Maude & Slaughterhouse-5. There is also a similarity to A Thousand Clowns. It reminds me of Martin Scorsese's criminally-underrated King of Comedy. Hoffman's acting is the usual good quality job and he is suitably laid back for the role, but he really doesn't come off like a rich music star. For one thing, a normal songwriter in that era who could not sleep and was alone all the time would almost certainly have used some drugs, or at least taken a drink, neither of which happens
